Market Sentiment Helped by US-China Trade Truce | Webinar

Market Sentiment Helped by US-China Trade Truce | Webinar

What's on this page

Market sentiment news and analysis:

  • A possible truce in the US-China trade war is being offset by the ongoing trade spat between the US and the EU.
  • Signs of a weakening global economy are also ringing alarm bells, although stocks remain in demand.

Trading sentiment dominated by trade issues

An improvement in market sentiment on a lull in the US-China trade war is being offset by the continuing trade dispute between the US and the EU over aircraft subsidies, as well as persistent signs that the global economy is slowing or even contracting.

This can be seen, for example, in the price of gold – one of the key “safe havens” – which fell back Monday but has been rising Tuesday.
